    ¡Peposo! A Conversation with Pepón Osorio

    An Evening with Acclaimed Artist Pepón Osorio

    When Pepón Osorio was 16, he took a bus to the museum at the Universidad de Puerto Rico in Río Piedras and saw an art piece that had a lasting impression on him: Francisco Oller’s 1893 painting
    El Velorio: The Wake.

    That early impression with Oller’s art definitely left its mark on Osorio to use his own art to address pressing social issues. Today Osorio is an internationally recognized artist known for challenging the stereotypes and misconceptions that shape our view of social institutions and human relationships.

    He will visit Centro Friday to join an engaging conversation on Osorio’s colorful, often riotous, installations. with Jennifer A. González, author of the new book called simply Pepón Osorio and Chon Noriega, who wrote the preface.

    Centro’s events are live streamed. If you can’t attend, visit our website at Centro Live Stream Event to view our events live. To watch past Centro events, visit our channel at http://youtube.com/centropr.

    Join Historic Campaign

    The May 2 event inducting nine leaders of the Boston Puerto Rican community into Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans Preserving Our History campaign exemplified the strength of how one generation inspires the next.

    Jeffrey Sánchez, a Boston state representative, was on hand to applaud his mother, honoree Maria Sánchez, founder of the Mission Main Tenants Task Force. Felix G. Arroyo, a former city councilor who recently ran for mayor and is currently the chief of city’s Department of Health and Human Services, applauded his father, Felix D. Arroyo, also a former city councilor (at large) and the first Latino to run citywide.
